- Incredibly though, they only went into business for the first time in the year 2000.:
The Betfair Exchange is 20 years old and it’s easy to see why it now has more than one million customers worldwide and is becoming increasingly popular in the UK. As of today, their success story speaks for itself, over 1 million active users on a global basis, bringing in weekly revenues in excess of £50 million. Which in turn means that whatever it is that Betfair is doing, they’re doing it right.
Not only are Betfair probably the world’s most famous betting exchange, but they also have their hand in being an all-round traditional sportsbook, casino and poker site, all available in English, Danish, Dutch, Spanish, Portuguese, Polish and more. They even break the betting exchange mould with a generous looking promotional section.
The most recent, is the official sponsorship of Serie A giants Juventus. Betfair also sponsor Barcelona, Arsenal, Leicester, Sunderland & Southampton and also share a partnership with the Prizefighter boxing series and the European Backgammon Tour.

Safety and Security
While Betfair as a brand in general is considered to be comprehensively safe, there have been quite a number of complaints regarding the performance and stability of the site itself. Slow running, occasional crashes and various problems associated with heavy use of flash, though we personally didn’t face any such issues during our tests.
Betfair Live Streaming and Live Betting
In-play betting represents a very big and important part of the experience at Betfair, with pretty much every major football, horse racing and cricket event covered. The facility is great to use and anyone placing a bet of at least £2 will have the opportunity to tune into the live streaming service. As for the live streaming itself, it’s nothing short of excellent when it works, though has a reputation for being slightly unreliable.
